Voghera security councillor kills immigrant

Cops says man fired after being pushed, League says self-defence

Voghera security councillor kills immigrant

PAVIA, JUL 21 - A row ensued Wednesday after the public safety and security councillor in the northern city of Voghera, Massimo Adriatici, was arrested on suspicion of shooting and killing an illegal Moroccan immigrant after an argument outside a bar on Tuesday night. Adriatici, a lawyer and member of the rightwing League party, allegedly fired at the 39-year-old immigrant in self-defence, the League said. Adriatici said the fatal shot went off accidentally after he was pushed to the ground by the victim. But police said he shot and hit the immigrant near the heart after he was pushed by him, according to judicial sources. Police ruled out the veracity of a report from several bar clients that a man saw the immigrant throw a bottle at the official. The immigrant may, however, have thrown a bottle previously while he was bothering, as he often did, people outside the bar in Piazza Meardi, police said. The immigrant was unarmed during the confrontation with Adriatici, police said. The League previously had said he was defending a girl from alleged molestation by the immigrant, who they said had a history of being drunk and disorderly as well as violent. League leader Matteo Salvini said "far from being the Wild West in Voghera, the hypothesis of legitimate self-defence is becoming clearer." The former interior minister and deputy premier said "we'll wait for the reconstruction of events, there are no citizens that go around shooting people with their legitimately held weapons, but self-defence is obviously always legitimate in the case of being attacked, as a last resort". Adriatici is a prominent lawyer in the town near Pavia in Lombardy and has started initiatives against riotous and drink and drug fuelled street night life known as the 'malamovida'. An anti-alcohol ordinance he promoted came into force Tuesday night, local sources said. Reportedly a former policeman, he also teaches criminal law to police cadets at Alessandria. He has suspended himself from his post, Voghera Mayor Paola Garlaschelli said. The victim, Youns El Boussetaoui, had a long criminal record for threats, resisting arrest, drug pushing, escaping detention, drunk driving without a license, fraud and illegal weapons possession, judicial sources said. Judicial sources said Adriatici was under investigation for suspected culpable excessive self defence. The League recently ushered in a new law on legitimate self-defence which is broadly similar to the US 'stand your ground' norms. In political reactions to Tuesday night's incident, the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S) said "it is unacceptable that an unarmed man can lose his life due to a shot fired in a public square, as if we were in the Wild West". Communist Refoundation said "we had known for a long time that individuals of dubious morality were elected in the ranks of the League, but what happened at Voghera is really too much", calling on the anti-migrant party to "face up to the crime" and saying they could not rule out a "racist" component in the incident. The Democratic Party (PD) said "what happened in Voghera is a huge event, which must spur everyone, and first of all the League, to reflect" on alleged vigilante justice. "Everyone, bar none, must condemn the Wild West logic and DIY justice," it said. "The culture of hate degenerates things", it added. The Green Europe party said "Salvini's statements in defence of (Adriatici) are extremely serious. Salvini who, with the investigation still ongoing, anticipates the reconstruction of the events and rushes to say that the gunshot fired accidentally is to be considered legitimate defence, is only defending a Wild West situation". The bar owner, Robino Punturiero, said "I don't justify in any way what happened but this person (El Boussetaoui) is absolutely not a victim, we have been the victims for some time". He said "I have known Massimo Adriatici for a very long time, he is a great bloke, calm, I can't say anything (against him), he has always helped us and he used to get the Carabinieri to patrol around here".
